I’m finally done with my tiger illustration and I’m pretty happy with how it turned out!! :) I really tried to push myself with this one and I think it paid off. I’m excited to hand a few of these out to some artists at ECCC that I’m trying to network with! I was really inspired by @jenbartel ‘s art and really wanted to do some fun, bright colors like she does in her work! :)
For me, being a dark-skinned black woman with natural hair, getting to be this center of this love story — Growing up, I didn’t get to see that very often…I think that artists and people in entertainment, we have such an incredible power to remind people of their worth and to help people dream big. So it’s exciting to get to be a part of that.
